      Tundra Disturbance Studies, III: Short-term Effects of Aeolian Sand and Dust, Yamal Region, Northwest Siberia - Volume 22 Issue 4 - Bruce C. Forbes. (4) In the Arctic, recovery of the vegetation following disturbance is particularly closely linked to recovery of the physical system because of the presence of ice-rich permafrost. Maps of terrain sensitivity to disturbance must consider the influence of ground ice and heat flux to the system following disturbance.

The overall focus of the study, following the NAS recommendations, was on Response, Resistance, Resilience, and Recovery from Disturbance (R4D) of tundra ecosystems.

However, disturbances that alter land cover are prevalent in Arctic-Boreal ecosystems, and changes in Arctic-Boreal land cover, which complicate interpretation of trends in vegetation indices, have mostly been ignored in previous studies.

and post-disturbance recovery (as greening. Certain Arctic regions have experienced more significant and rapid climate warming than others in recent decades. In the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug (YNAO), on Russia's West Siberian plain, average air temperatures have increased 1–2 °C over the past 30 years ().Portions of northern Alaska and Canada have warmed to a comparably high level during the same period (1 –3).

Advancing knowledge on the mechanisms of and benthic community recovery from disturbance has become particularly important in West Antarctica (and in the Arctic), given the current major climate changes centred there.

Levels of disturbance are already changing and it is likely that the ability of benthos to respond is as well.Khitun, O. Self-recovery after technogenic and natural disturbances in the central part of the Yamal Peninsula (Western Siberian Arctic).
